always create a much more favor
able impression on the visitor, by
continuing right along in the usual
work and not swerving the least
iota from their daily plan. Under

it is not to be wondered at' that
many prominent people have gain
ed the impression that our school
system is a system of fancy stunts
and tolder-oll. Our advice to teach
ers is to "hew to the line, let the
chips fall where they may." That
is to say, stick to your regular pro
gram and leave the "fancy facts and
figures" for next year's almanac.

Kivk accidents in a single after
noon, due to freshly oiled roads, is
appalling, and a condition of affairs
which should receive investigation
at once. The Garden Island
has reported serious accidents at
various points on a number of oc
casions, and has been, by some,
criticised for so doing, but we be
lieve, that in repeating, that oiled
roads are a menace t o safety,
we speak the sentiment of the ma
jority, and that all damage caused
by accidents should be paid by the
In the Waimea incident the trou
ble might have been entirely illimi
nated by applying the oil to but
half of the road at one time and
permitting the oiled half to soak
well in before completing the other
half. If the present Road Luna
cannot carry on the work as it
should be, about the only thing to
do, is to get a man who can, and
will do it.
The chief object of a visit to a

Visiting observe the methods
Schools employed by the va
rious teachers, and
make mental comparison of the
work as it was carried on in our
time and that which is in vogue to
day. We enter a school with a
desire to see actual work; to behold
the young mind in its eager attempt
at expansion, and incidentally to
obtain some idea of the methods
employed in the accomplishment of
such. It was our extreme pleasure
to be cordially received by many of
the schools last week, finding,
without exception, our teachers do
ing their utmost to properly instruct
the hoard of youngsters who are
beingentrusted to their care. Among
the schools visited, were Kalaheo,
Hanapepe, Makaweli, Waimea and
There is, however, to be found
in many of our schools, a little ha
bit which has no place there and
one, to which if the slightest refer
ence is made, we feel sure will be in
stantly annihilated. It is this: On
entering a school ro-m, the majori
ty of teachers are immediately seiz
ed with a desire to switch their pro
gram and ring in some "Memory
Gem," "Phonic Drill," "Quick
Arithmetic,' "Rapid Addition" or

Pretty hand painted place cards
attached by ribbons to a basket of
nuts, formed an attractive part of
the table, which was one of the
good X-mas cheer, during the
time that the guests were indulg

discoursed sweet and soothing

participated in the festivities of the
An article in a recent Youths
Companion comments favorably on
the wisdom of the mothers of Spring

school rooms be swept daily. We
would commend to these Spring

Lihue Private School where the
rooms are scrubbed daily.
